What Leads to Unbelief
Having total and complete belief plays an important part in determining the level of Christianity of a person in spiritual life. The Bible has got teachings that warn of the threats to the spiritual life of a person as a result of unbelief. It requires one to have deep faith and as well believe in one’s heart even though it may seem difficult in the eyes of mere human beings. Separation with God comes as a result of unbelief as in the Christian life it requires one to have complete faith and belief even in the impossibilities. One’s faith is, in turn, strengthened and as well deepened as a result. Believing in the unseen may seem very difficult to many people but to those who reads and understands the Bible and as well desires to live according to the will of God they are much ready to endure and follow the process. There tends to be an increase in cases of unbelief by many people in the world that we are living in today. The following are some of the causes.
There is the tendency of some people to be ignorant which makes it one of the causes of unbelief. Not seeing the need to heed to what they are told and as well being taught is what many tend to do. Christians tends to be taught on how to believe in Jesus as from the Bible. There to be many people who do not read and listen to the word and therefore do not understand what believing is all about. Also there are those who tends to read the word but do not fully understand it, therefore, leading them to ignore what it entails. Moving out of the faithful ways is brought about by being ignorant.
Another reason is not being fully convinced to believe. some people hear and as well read the Bible, but they are not fully convinced by the evidence found within God’s word. persuading and as well convincing people to have complete faith is what many pastors try to do. Different ideas regarding the word many people, not to believe. There tends to be the need to reduce these ideas and views to more positive ones to improve one’s belief.
There is the tendency of what the world offers to the last cause. different people have got different perceptions of the word. A preference of their knowledge than that of the word is what many tend to do. There is the tendency of the world giving different options leading to not believing in the word. Therefore one has to be much keen while deciding and as well choosing on how to live the life that is as according to how the word requires or by following the influences of this world.
